The FOR-A MFR-3000 is a routing switcher that builds on the solid performance of the larger MFR-5000/8000 units through redundancy and easy maintenance. It can be expanded by 8 inputs or outputs at a time, up to 64x64. In mixed environments, audio modules can also be added.* Designed for mission critical broadcast facilities, additional environments include hospital surgical rooms, corporate meeting rooms, and research centers, it's an optimal solution in midsize systems where variable input/output capabilities and mixed signal formats are used.
*NOTE: To be supported

FOR-A MFR-3000 Features:

  • Multi-Format Video Input and Output
    As with our MFR-5000/8000 routing switchers, this unit provides standard support for 3G-SDI (Level A/B), HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and ASI input and output. No need to worry about signal formats, thanks to auto signal detection.
  • Configurable matrix: Up to 64 x 64
    Install up to 8 input and 8 output cards, into a maximum 64-input/64-output matrix. Use up to 4 inputs and 4 outputs at 8K, and 16 inputs and 16 outputs at 4K (QFHD). Support for AES/EBU, analog audio, and multi-viewer (monitor output) via additional I/O cards.
    • MFR-8SDI: SDI input card
    • MFR-8SDO: SDI output card
  • Outstanding Redundancy
    Redundancy in routing switchers is the core system requirement that ensures continuous operation if problems arise.
    • Redundant CPU board (option MFR-30CPU)
    • Redundant power supply (option MFR-30PS)
    • Router linkage:
    • Parallel operation of two routing switchers ensures matrix redundancy and enables quadruple redundancy of the power supply unit and CPU board.
  • SNMP Monitoring
    Can be integrated into an SNMP monitoring system. Enables monitoring of various operational states, such as power, fan, and CPU status, SDI signal input or output, and crosspoint errors. SNMP traps are sent to a manager if system failure and recovery occur.
  • Configured a Visual Interface
    A built-in Web server enables immediate setup and eliminates the need to install software on external devices. Using this interface, settings can also be configured in offline environment.
  • Versatile Crosspoint Control
    Besides typical crosspoint switching, the unit enables a variety of crosspoint control:
    • Salvo
    • Take
    • Link
    • Errorproofing (Inhibit, Lock)
  • Front control panel (MFR-30FP)
    Equipped with a control panel for convenient crosspoint switching from the front.
  • Interface Expansion Units
    Three types of interface expansion units are available to suit specific applications:
    • MFR-TALM: Tally Manager
    • MFR-RU LINK: Remote Control Relay Unit
    • MFR-GPI: GPI Unit
  • Connectivity with Other Products
    Can be remote-controlled through the Ethernet or serial ports. Compatibility with common protocols such as TSL and Harris allows tally linkage or auto source name tracking for crosspoint switching.
  • Remote Control Unit
    We offer several types or remote control unit to suit your application. The number of units that can be connected is a maximum of 128, including the main unit. This lets you build a flexible control environment by the way you partition the matrix and make operation level settings. Please contact your Sales Professional for more details.
